Project Overview The City of Raleigh is overhauling two major downtown streets, Blount Street, and Person Street, and converting them from one-way thoroughfares into two way streetscapes. The Blount St.-Person St. Corridor can be seen through multiple lenses: as a major urban thoroughfare, as a commercial and business street, and as a neighborhood address.

Potential opportunities include stand alone sculptures, and/or artwork integrated into pedestrian paving, lighting, benches/bike racks or other site elements. The Project adds roundabouts at the north and south ends of downtown Raleigh.
